Our Little Thing - Creating A Sustainable Lifestyle In Patagonia

Creación de un estilo de vida sostenible en Patagonia  パタゴニアでサステイナブルな暮らし作り

Great News!!! We've won an International contest for our little thing.

A month or so ago I entered Wiser Earth's, Earth Day Living contest, and two days ago I got a message to say that we had been chosen as the winners, for our work here in Patagonia to create a sustainable lifestyle, through our home and gardens.

Here's a link to the announcement page on the Wiser Earth Blog. Wiser Earth is a social network with over 70,000 members world wide and it's fantastic that they have recognised what we are doing here. The prize for winning the contest includes US$1000 which can donate to any organisation we choose.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to help people doing good work and have chosen Food and Trees For Africa, who will help a school and community in a poor South African township to create a Permaculture Food Garden.

We have helped FTFA with their garden projects and we know the value first hand, we've seen the success of the gardens and know how much they  help kids get nourishment with their school meals. The project we will help is already underway and our donation will go to improving the garden and feeding even more people in the community. 

The gardens empower people and everyone get's to re-learn how to grow food.

Here's a picture from the 2009 trip we organised for 100 Japanese volunteers to help in the creation and funding of a garden for the Royal Bafokeng people.

This photo shows the Japanese volunteers and a couple of hundred Bafokeng people making the garden.

Congratulations Paul. I just spoke to Jeunesse today at Food & Trees for Africa, and they are so thrilled that you have nominated them to receive this gift. They will be using the donation to help support a community garden project being run by local citizens group which directly benefits the local school children as well as orphans, AIDS victims and elderly people in Soweto.
